League of Legends Daily Fantasy Helper: LPL/LCK, 7/10/20
FanDuel is offering League of Legends daily fantasy, and look, if you don't know what that is, it's okay.
I have you covered with a detailed but straightforward primer to get you all set up, whether you're a DFS player looking to dig into the new sport or a League of Legends fan ready to take your action over to FanDuel.
The LCK Summer Split is officially here, and we have League of Legends DFS action! Let's break down the LPL/LCK slate for Friday, July 10th to see who stands out. (Just a heads up, the slate locks at 4:00 a.m. EST.)
Here are the starting lineups for the LPL. Generally, the LCK doesn't release starting lineups prior to the games.
|Team||Match Record||Map Record||Average Towers
|Oh My God||3-4||8-9||5.8||2.18|
Invictus Gaming are heavy favorites over eStar, while the other matchup has no favorite.

Both GenG and KT Rolster are the favorites in their respective matchups, making them clear teams to stack.
Star - 1.5x Points
icon, OMG ($8,600) has been posting some serious fantasy points over his last four series and now has a chance to extend that versus Bilibili Gaming. Neither team is the favorite in this series, and it's shaping up to go a full three games, which means plenty of fantasy points on both sides. icon comes in with 69 FanDuel points or more in four straight series, with three of them being at 82 points or higher.
For the most part, icon's stats aren't amazing in the Summer Split -- they are a mid-tier team -- but he does excel in the fact he is averaging the seventh-most (3.29) kills per game among Mid-Laners in the LPL. He isn't expensive, is looking strong right now, and is in a winnable matchup versus Bilibili Gaming.
Curse, OMG ($7,700) is much like his teammate, icon, listed above. He has four straight games with 70 FanDuel points or more -- they are on a four-match winning streak -- but he has modest stats for the Summer Split overall. During this hot streak, he has posted 11 assists or more in each series, along with 9 kills or more in each while having 7 deaths or fewer in three of the four.
The nine kills or more is flat-out amazing for a Top-Laner since they aren't one of the main damage dealers on the team. If we are going to be getting that type of ceiling out of a player who is under $8K, Curse could be one of the best options on the entire slate.
BonO, KT Rolster ($7,800) has been on a roller coaster in terms of production recently, and it's on the way up right now. His FanDuel points in recent series have been 77, 15, 87, 12, and 54. That is all over the place but shows -- very clearly -- his production comes when KT wins the series.
BonO comes in with the fourth-highest (72.4%) Kill Participation (KP) Rate among junglers in the LCK, and that is shown by the fact he had 11 assists or more in the three most recent series KT won. He gets involved, posts fantasy points, and KT win games.
Rookie, Invictus Gaming ($9,100) is the most expensive Mid-Laner on the slate and is well worth spending for. Invictus Gaming are massive favorites against eStar, and the potential ceiling Rookie has shown should make him popular on this slate. Invictus have won three of their past four series, where Rookie posted 73 FanDuel points or more in two of them. In one of the victories, he had only 47 FanDuel points, simply due to the fact the rest of his team did so well in the matchup.
We are also in a situation where Rookie could pick up the sweep bonus, which would help him reach or exceed value. Stacking a clear-cut favorite like Invictus Gaming is a great option, and be sure to include Rookie in that stack.
Ruler, GenG ($9,900) is coming off a horrible performance (9.52 FanDuel points), but that can turn around quickly versus Team Dynamics. Prior to that dud, Ruler posted 103, 108, 74, and 80 FanDuel points, showing why he is one of the best ADCs in the LCK. In that four-match stretch, Ruler had double-digit assists AND kills in every single series.
Locking in that volume of fantasy points is amazing for your lineups, but it comes at a costly salary. There are plenty of ways to fit Ruler into your lineups on this slate, starting with the support player below.
XinMo, Bilibili Gaming ($6,800) is one of the cheapest options you will find on any League of Legends slate. There are players listed below $7K, but they are often subs who don't play. XinMo is their full-time starter and comes in with 40 FanDuel points or more in four of his last five series. On top of that, Bilibili Gaming won only two of those four series, showing he can produce fantasy points in a losing effort.
Oh My God ($7,600) have 45 FanDuel points or more in four straight series, where the three most recent ones were all at 50 points or higher. Choosing the team spot can be the last piece for some people and rather unexciting overall. But OMG have been hot lately, are in a winnable matchup, and can produce fantasy points in a loss.
